How to Slice a Tuple in Python?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To slice a tuple in Python, you can use the colon (:) operator along with the starting and ending index positions of the slice.

The syntax for slicing a tuple in Python is as follows:

tuple_name[starting_index:ending_index:step]

Here’s what each part of the syntax means:

  • tuple_name: The name of the tuple you want to slice.
  • starting_index: The index position where the slice should start.
  • ending_index: The index position where the slice should end (this index is not included in the slice).
  • step (optional): The number of steps between each element in the slice. The default value is 1.

Here’s an example of slicing a tuple:

my_tuple = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
# slice from index 1 to index 4 (not including index 4)
new_tuple = my_tuple[1:4]
print(new_tuple) # Output: (2, 3, 4)

In this example, the slice starts from index 1 (which contains the value 2) and ends at index 4 (which contains the value 5). The resulting slice is a new tuple containing the values 2, 3, and 4.
